    Grealish came on and did the square root if nothing. He was awful!! The only forward player who did anything was the person he took off fir Grealish! The res,t you may as well have had you and me on as we’d at least have bruised a couple (well, I would have definitely)

    I agree Grealish is a decent player. He’s nowhere near the quality of Foden. But probably a better option than Sterling at the minute.

    Don't rate Grealish at all. He has no real end product. He wins free kicks but that's because he goes down under the slightest contact. I'd rather see an out of form Sterling as he can make things happen. Ideally, though, we'd be starting with Sancho and Foden who are both genuine talents.

    Thought I was on my own with that one. Very overrated IMO....no where near the class of Foden. As you say, goes down way too easy....

    That’s why I used the term “decent”. He’s got skill and obvious ability but IMO Is nowhere near the player the press seem to think he is. Every time they talk about him it’s like they’re talking about the next Gazza! Or Pele!! Takes a good dead ball (so does Seb Larson) “wins” a lot of free kicks (aka dives a lot)
